Newcastle v West Ham: Late wobbles could hit Hammers again
It may pay to follow recent trends and back West Ham to start fast but dip late when they travel to Newcastle on Saturday, says Dave Tindall...
Newcastle position looking much safer
West Ham still in dreamland
But if you thought that stat was worth repeating in a socially-distanced beer garden, how about this one: David Moyes has played 22 games against bottom-half teams since returning to West Ham and hasn't lost any of them. Seriously, not a single one. He's won 14 and drawn eight.
The 'here we go again' feeling can be a horrible one and, at some point, a Hammers capitulation could end in a defeat. It's big odds to do so and therefore worth a speculative punt.
